*technically, they just say "All. Leaving" since the structure of the language is a bit different.
Thats interesting. cultural, or language phenomenon? Perhaps it doesn't quite translate well, and means something more along the lines of a friendly "thanks, thats all i needed. goodbye now." I don't know.
I know german has some interesting things like that. for example:
"Mein teil" can either mean "my part" or "my penis" depending on the context.
Tom: How is it going with The Truck?
How did you Shift? With your 'Part'?
First, you tear the Emergency Brake loose with your bare hands.
Then, you move though five gears without a clutch, using your 'Part'.
I wonder: What the Hell would it be like to meet you?
Are you Huge?
I met a Canadian like that, one time.
A perfectly formed Huge person.
He was delightful.
I felt so bad.
He sat on a chair and it came apart under him.
He was in extraordinary physical condition.
He caught himself on the way down.
He was standing there with the chair in his hands, apologizing
before most people knew what had happened.
Are you a skinny guy with that Unnatural Strength?
That happens, a lot. Skinny guys can be tricky.
So interesting. Tom and His Part.A modern Saga.
Back on Topic:
Yes. Graceful Exits are Tricky.
I am not good at that stuff.
I am not good at the Introductions and I am not good at the Exits.
People get so angry at me. It is Cultural Clumsiness.
It seems they want Ten Minutes of AssKissing before I can speak.
(fuck that) If I have something to say, I try to write it down.
If by some fucking Miracle I am allowed into a real conversation,
Getting Out can be More Tricky than Getting In.
It seems a person does not, just, Get Up and Walk Out.
I tried that in my Own Home. I owned that house.
I was tired of listening to Some AssHole in a Uniform.
So I got up and walked out. Wrong way to disengage.
He arrested My Ass.
Cultural Shit is Hard!
In Russian a quick, "I am leaving." would sets the social world 'right'?
Maybe, I should memorize those words.
ech. It's too late for me.
You memorize them.
Let us know how that works.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
